tv reception to watch the world cupAccording to a media statement released by CVM TV, the television station has taken steps to improve areas of Jamaica affected by poor quality reception.

In its latest regulatory report to the Broadcasting Commission last week Friday (June 6, 2014), CVM advised that it had carried out a range of corrective actions including realignment of transmission antennae, reconfiguring internal systems and providing satellite decoders to a number of cable companies across nine parishes.

The cable companies which have had upgrading works are: Astra Technology, Inntech Communications, Wilson Enterprises (Portland), St. Thomas Cable, Summit Satellite (St.Thomas), Direct Cable, Linscom Network (St. Catherine), Marimaxx Communications, TruStar Cable (St. Elizabeth), Odyssey Cable, Star Cable (St. Ann), CTL Limited, Quality Cable (St.Andrew) Cable One Ja Limited (St. Mary), Cornwall Communications (St. James) and Venus Cable (Clarendon).

As it relates to direct signals, CVM TV reported that it had increased power by installing Field Effect Transistors (FETs) and had increased antenna heights in Eastern Portland which should yield improved coverage in Priestman’s River, Commodore, Fair Prospect, Manchioneal and surrounding communities.


CVM remains under regulatory review, with a summary report to be presented to a meeting of the Commission after the FIFA World Cup Championships.
